Picture of the Week

Week 07: Eindhoven and home

Filed under: — Administrator @ 19:00

My main picture of week 7 is not necessarily my best picture of the week, but it is significant for a couple of reasons. It is a portrait of my daughter, whom I love very much; and I took the picture with my newly acquired Bronica 100mm lens, which I had been looking to buy for some time. It is quite rare and not many come up for sale in the usual places. So I used my daughter as one of the test subjects. The picture is made by window light, on Fuji 400CN film.

The alternates
:

The first alternate is also from my house. We like to cook and have many cookbooks. One morning I was looking at a stand we have in the kitchen, on which we usually keep the 4-5 most recently used cookbooks. And I realised how multicultural our family is: there are four cuisines represented here (Spanish, Indian, French and Polish), in three languages (Spanish, English and Polish).

The next four alternates are from Eindhoven, where I work. In the southern part of the Netherlands, carnaval is taken seriously, and so here is Axel, one of our system engineers, who came to work dressed up as some movie character:

Then three Eindhoven doors and windows that caught my eye as I was taking a walk while having the oil changed in my car.
Alternate 3:

Alternate 4:
The people who live here have a certain take on life. The text basically means that it is useless to think too much…

Alternate 5:
Many Dutch homes have a sign on the door saying that they do not wish to receive advertising flyers or junk mail. This family wrote it in their own words: “we don’t have any money anyway!”

Alternate 6:
And finally, a picture in a garden south of Utrecht, where I found this intriguing statue:
